This is a round up of show stopping bakes and super delicious treats. Decadence and deliciousness abound. These recipes show what is really possible to create in your own kitchen.
As the first break in the weather appears and the sun begins to shine what better way could there be to celebrate it than with these mouthwatering bakes. I genuinely struggled to select our features for this linky as there were just so many I fell in baking love with. I am a glutton at heart and I could have cheerfully dived face first into all of them.....twice.
Kate's incredible Gluten Free Chocolate Orange Brownies and Dark And Sticky Jamaican Ginger Cake particularly rang my baking bells. Her Brownies looked so deliciously damp and fudgy with chocolate orange and her Sticky Ginger Cake called to me for at least a week. I found it so hard to pull myself away from her brownie photos.....just look at those beauties.
Jenny's Creme Egg Flapjacks were quite frankly genius and I just loved the sound of Coriander's Chocolate And Hazelnut Flapjack Bites.
Now Onto 4 Show Stopper Bakes.
The Foodie Journey brought her gorgeous Vegan Chocolate Mousse Tart to the Linky party.
What a chocolatey beauty she is. Sylvie expertly guides us through this vegan masterpiece that will satisfy everyone's needs, literally! I could just eat a slice or three right now.
Jacqui showcased her stunning Lemon And Raspberry Layer Cake. Drop Dead Gorgeous in an English Rose sort of way.
This is Jacqui's first recipe blogging as Only Crumbs Remain and what an entrance. This is a cake of celebration in more ways than one. I'm sure there are many more elegant bakes to come. Watch this "Only Crumbs Remain" space....
These Gluten Free Rose Cupcakes from Glutarama are very pretty in pink.
They are just perfect for Mother's Day and dairy free too. I would feel very spoilt if I got one of these on Sunday.
This Chocolate Orange Loaf Cake from Kat at The Baking Explorer looks almost too good to eat.
A damply dark chocolate sponge is topped expertly with chocolate orange buttercream and slices of Terry's Chocolate Orange. How incredible would a slice of that be? Mega lush.
What I Recreated In Apply To Face Blog's Kitchen
This month I have been baking as if my baking number is soon to be up. There has not been a weekend that I have not baked for and as my children get tubbier I can see no end in sight. One particular baking triumph were my Meringues.
Chewy in the middle and crisp on the outside. Meringue bliss, genuinely hard to beat with a big bowl of strawberries and softly whipped cream.
I am inspired every where I look and of course #BakingCrumbs is a veritable feast for the baker. This month I was drawn to Eb's Easy Peasie Foodie Easy White Soda Bread
This was something that I hadn't ever baked before but when I tasted it I recognised the flavour. Super simple and speedy to put together it has a distinctive flavour that I loved. I served it slathered with unsalted butter with some soup and it was blinkin gorgeous. Eb's recipe has firmly earned it's place in my kitchen and I can't wait to get my chops around it again.
